What is it?

  • The Accommodation Request Portal (ARP) is an online accommodation management system for students receiving services through the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD).  Students use the Portal to notify instructors of accommodations, set up testing accommodations, and request notetakers and access the notes. 
  • Instructors can now use the Portal to view student accommodations, Testing Contracts and Requests, upload exams, and notetaker pairings and uploaded notes!

What's my part?

  • Accommodation notifications
    • You will receive an email from our system on behalf of any student requesting accommodations in your course. The email includes information regarding the accommodations requested, such as extra time on tests or notetakers.  This information is also viewable on the Faculty Portal.
    • Please note that even if the notification has the notetaker accommodation listed, you are not responsible for finding a notetaker until you receive the "Notetaker Needed" email.
  • Alternative testing
    • Students with testing accommodations should come to you to complete their Alternative Testing Contracts.  These Contracts encourage students and instructors to discuss when students will be taking their exams, what is allowed for use on the exams, and whether you will be providing the accommodations or the students will be taking exams in CSD.  These Contracts are also used by the system to determine how long students will have to take their tests while in CSD.
      • You will receive an email when an Alternative Testing Contract has been completed.  The information from the Contract is in the email; please review the information and then click the link to Approve or the link to Request Changes.
      • You can also view completed Testing Contracts through the Faculty Portal, and make changes.
    • When a student completes a Request to take an exam in CSD, you will receive an email.  You will also receive an email when the Request has been approved, and when the Request is modified (for example, the date or time is changed).  In the emails will be a link through which you can submit the exam.  Please be sure to reach out to CSD if you have any questions about the information on a request. 
    • You can also view both current and past Requests through the Faculty Portal, and upload exams to multiple students at once. 
      • NOTE: Students may submit Requests for all of their exams at once, meaning you will receive a flurry of Request emails concerning each exam of the semester.  When submitting your tests, please be sure you use the link in the correct email, or use the direct link through the Faculty Portal.  You may also email your tests to Patty Beran (beranp@uww.edu). ·      
  • Notetaker requests
    • When a student has confirmed that they need a notetaker in your course, you will receive an email asking you to make an announcement to the class requesting a notetaker.  When a student volunteers, please check their notes for completeness; we also encourage the student(s) receiving the notes to check the notes for legibility and usability.  The notetaker then registers on the Accommodation Request Portal and uploads their notes to the Portal to make them available to the student(s).  Faculty are able to view notetaker pairings and any uploaded notes through the Faculty Portal.
